Doomsday, the movie and the argument

Another example of yet another movie featuring the Doomsday scenario.

If you’re looking for a serious and heavily intellectual debate on something called the Doomsday Argument then check out http://www.anthropic-principle.com/primer1.html where ‘A Primer on the Doomsday argument’ is discussed and a theory is broken down for the audience and you can either accept it’s calculations or choose to fiddle with the theory yourself. It’s an interesting take on predicting ‘The End’, but it is the first time I have come across a philosophical attempt at figuring out our chances with a mathamatical formula.
